You're talking about dynamic linking or static linking? Debian can
ship emacs if it's statically linked against Motif, but by our own
policies it would have to go in non-free.
If anyone could be licensed to use an emacs which is dynamically linked
against Motif, then Debian could also ship this flavor of emacs.
I consider these to be Motif restrictions, not GPL restrictions,
which is why I made my "If you think the GPL is wierd" comment.
